Among the allegations, the EFF wants an investigation into a bank account with the Royal Bank of Canada it says was opened by Gordhan.
Regarding Anisha Gordhan, the EFF alleged that she had fraudulently “participated in government business representing her father and/or his business associates”.
Malema’s move came a day after Gordhan laid charges of crimen injuria, incitement of violence and criminal defamation against the EFF leader.
On Monday, Gordhan’s lawyer, Tebogo Malatji, said the minister would also lay a hate speech complaint with the Equality Court against Malema. He said the minister would demand that Malema pay R150,000 for his statements. That amount, if granted, would be donated to charitable causes.
Gordhan has stated categorically that his daughter did not benefit from state contracts and her employer, Investec, issued a statement saying she did not receive any irregular payments when she worked for them.
